Making : the most of the sun
Cooking : nothing – salad days!
Drinking : iced coffee – 40ml espresso, 90ml cold frothy milk, 1-2 tsp sugar syrup over lots of ice cubes. Bliss
Reading: the last chapter of my book
Wanting: nothing. Am content
Playing: Simon Mayo’s Books of the Year podcast, it’s really good. Episode 1 was only out last Monday (free on iTunes or acast or podbean for android users.) Lynda La Plante and Robbie Williams feature. Lynda is hilarious. I’ve listened twice. It’s made me howl with laughter
Deciding: what to read next?
Wishing: to crochet and knit again soon
Enjoying: Plymouth’s sea views
Waiting: for dinner
Liking: all this sunshine and clear blue skies
Wondering: what shall we do tomorrow
It’s now ‘tomorrow in Cornwall (30th)
Loving: sea views, summer flowers and Cornish cider!
Pondering: all sorts, as usual
Considering: repainting my nails
Watching: the clouds
Trerice, National Trust property near Newquay. An Elizabethan manor Winston Graham, the writer of Poldark, used to stay in. It provided the inspiration for Trenwith. Quite interesting page if you’re also into Poldark
Brunch. Mines not traditional as usual: Texas BBQ beef..
Hoping: for some rain to water all the dry gardens (heavy rainfall overnight would be best)
Marvelling: at all the roses. It’s a good year for them
Needing: to drink some water probably
Smelling: fig leaves, they smell exactly like the fruit
Wearing: one of my Seasalt tops, cropped linen trousers and Birkenstocks
Treacle tart and clotted cream at Trerice
Following: Twitter a bit, since no craft of my own makes IG a little dull
Knowing: it’s not forever
Thinking: I must do the rest of my physio exercises today
Admiring: lovely summer dresses
Sorting: an unpacked car into unfamiliar drawers and cupboards
Getting: browner (orange!)
Bookmarking: anything sourdough related for the last few weeks
Coveting: a Cornish cottage with land and a sea view of my own
Disliking: people who play loud music in gardens (generally, luckily nowhere specific to me) Why assume everyone wants to hear your choice of noise? HEADPHONES!
Giggling: at funny people
Snacking: on smoked nuts
Helping: to settle in
Mixing: with locals
Slicing: salad (hearing it happening anyway. Does that count?!)
Winning: at life (sorry, too smug?)
Pretending: I live here
Embracing: holiday time
How are you?
